I got a message from my mom. Her roommate & old friend gave in to cancer last night. I know she had been suffering severely. She has peace now, and comfort. It's so very sad, especially because I just saw her & got to spend some time with her last September. She was, or seemed to be, just fine back then. She was healthy. She was vibrant & active. She was not old enough.
I've known Helen for more than 30 of my years and I always enjoyed spending time with her & her family. I am so sad that she went so quickly. I will miss you, Helen. You were my mom's friend, you were my friend. I love you! Rest in peace.
